Helsinki

Helsinki ©
Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Korkeasaari Zoo and Nuuksio National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, head outdoors with King's Road, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.
